Dive bar of history. You enter and get steeped in the atmosphere of blues legends old and new. It was great being a part of history just by being there.

Believe it or not, this was my first visit to Rosa's. But it won't be the last, that's for sure. Rosa's is the quintessential Chicago blues club. This type of club is what I picture when I think Chicago blues. The staff is super friendly, and the space is dark and cozy. The club is long and narrow, there's not a lot of tables from front to back, but to me, it's a perfect size. The club holds around 50 people, sitting and standing. The music sounds incredible, and you're close to the small stage, even if you're in the back. Your line of sight is pretty good, even in the very back of the club. You pay at the front door as you come, in, and the host will show you to an open table. On this Friday night, the place was full, and people were dancing on the dance floor and at their tables. The bar is full service with a couple of bartenders, and they will bring drinks to your table. The cocktails are excellent and robust. I believe the show starts at 9 pm and the band plays three or four sets. We arrived around 11-11:30 pm and the band was in mid-set. At the end of the set, they are sitting at the bar or walking around talking with everyone. John Primer & The Real Deal Blues Band was playing this night, and they were awesome! My understanding is this level of talent is here every night. And it's been my experience at similar Chicago blues clubs around the city. As we approached the end of the last set and closing time, the mood was still full-on party mood!!

If you are a real blues fan you absolutely have to visit this place. It is the definition of a real down home Chicago blues club. I would travel back to Chicago anytime just to go to Rosa’s Lounge!!Photo of me with Chicago blues legend, John Primer.
